..... I know it's only day 2 but it's going well so far!! Yesterday, I had NO chocolate, or cake, or crisps, or biscuits. I was a good girl.

So far so good today too. Although still have around 5 hours before bed! But i've just eaten my tea and am stuffed to the gills, so shouldn't need anything else. I have some bananas and little orange things (not sure if they are clementines or not!), so they will suffice if I need nibble later.

I've survived 4 days at work so far, without any tears or stress. Doesn't sound much, but bearing in mind I couldn't get through 1 day without crying a couple of months ago, it's all steps in the right direction :)

There is a big box of Thornton's chocolates on the end of my desk at work (for some reason when people bring in chocolates/sweets they always end up at the end of my desk). Also, our office is right above the shop where they serve food. Bacon/sausage butties, toast etc until 10.30, then sandwiches and hot food. So we can smell foooood all day. It's like torture! And it's no wonder i've struggled with my diet since being in that office. We are moving in a few weeks though, so no more shop, which can only be a good thing!


  1. Hey Gemma,

    Sounds like things are going to plan so far :)

    If I think I am going to struggle in the evenings with food, I also leave fruit within reaching distance of me and once that's gone I brush my teeth which kinda forces me not to eat because otherwise i'd have to brush again and I find it soooo boring LOL It works though!

    1. Good plan! I can't eat or drink anything for at least 30 mins after brushing my teeth, plus it would mean I have incredibly clean teeth! I'm gonna try this :)

  2. wow. best good.
    good news.
